Abstract [en]

Composites of carbon nanofibres (CNF) (30-50 nm diam., length up to 1 mu m) in two polymer matrices (polybutadiene-styrene and polypyrrhol) show strong non-linearities of conductivity vs. CNF concentration. We have studied their voltage-current dependencies, and observed correlation of their extrema and layer morphology. Multistability of conductivity is discovered, with apparent effect of magnetic field effect on it in polypyrrhol-based composites. In addition CNF spatial configuration influence on layers' conductivity is discussed.
